The contactless vital signs sensor uses Impulse Radio Ultra-Wide Band Radar Technology (IR-UWB RADAR) to continuously scan for ToF (time of flight) motions by emitting 10 million impulses per second in an area of up to 10 square meters. When the device detects a fall, it will locate the heartbeat, breathing signals and movement of the body on the ground of the monitored space. When any one of the vital signs is not detected, the sensor will send out a real-time push alert to a designated responder via a smart phone or a wearable device to call for immediate follow-up.
This patented product can deliver numerous benefits for use at hospitals and elderly care centers where bedrooms and bathrooms are high-risk areas for fall accidents to occur when the person being monitored is often alone and out of sight. It is also suitable for home use to keep an eye on seniors living on their own.
Vitals is a system uses mobile Bio-sensors to monitor heart rate, respiration rate and body motion to predict and alert for health deterioration and clinical events. If any of these signals is out of the normal range, or if the sensor indicates the person in bed is getting off the bed, an alert will be sent directly to the people in charge through smart phones, tablets or the solution’s dashboard. The system can also be used to set reminder to caregiver to perform regular task.
Its plug-and-play set up, and connectable to local wifi to support remote access makes it highly cost-effective for care facilities that need to monitor a large number of beds, such as elderly homes and hospitals.
